Reality and fantasy blend as Chad’s mental illness deteriorates…
Chad hasn’t had an easy life, with an abusive father and a mother who killed herself. Add to that Dion, the teacher he’s in love with, rejecting him, and a mental illness taking over his life: things are far from great—even if they feel great in the clutch of mania.
No matter how angry Jeremy is at Dion, he can’t turn his back on the broken boy on his doorstep.
Jeremy has a hard enough time dealing with Dion cheating on him, and he does not need the student in question to show up at his door. But Jeremy’s not heartless either, and he helps the beaten teenager.
It gets more complicated when Jeremy realises Dion isn’t over Chad—and then when Jeremy himself starts to care for Chad too. Can they figure out a way to make things work between them, amidst Chad’s deteriorating mental state and the deaths of two people close to him?
